Round 9 Feature Match: Zhenning Guo versus Sven Amaya

November 8th, 2015

Zhenning Guo is the only undefeated Majespecter Duelist left in the tournament, and while he is probably already locked for Top Cut at this point, getting into the Top 32 as the first seed has some pretty big upside in terms of who you are paired against in the first rounds. His opponent is Sven Amaya, one of many Duelists who chose to Duel with Kozmo this weekend, but unlike Guo he is sitting at 7-0-1, meaning that he has a draw and that this match matters much more for him. If he loses this match he will need to win the following, otherwise he is likely to be out of contention for Top Cut. Who will come out on top between this battle between Dimension of Chaos strategies?

Amaya won the roll and opted for Guo to go first.

Round 6 Feature Match: Alexander Juneja versus Imran Khan

November 8th, 2015

For this Round we have Alexander Juneja piloting Burning Abyss, a very well represented Deck previous to this event but it seems as though the impending increase in Kozmo Duelists may have affected the numbers here. Juneja has teched out his Deck with a ton of sweet cards like Anti-Spell Fragrance and Horn of Heaven to make his match ups against Nekroz and Pendulum centric strategies better. His opponent is Imran Khan, is playing a very innovative Pendulum strategy that utilizes combos with Performages and Dracoslayers to swarm the Field with Monsters and take his opponent down with Rank 4 Xyz. Will Juneja’s tech lead to the match up being very one-sided? Or can Khan’s unique strategy knock out one of the top Decks?

Juneja won the roll and chose to start the Duel.

Round 5 Feature Match: Destin Kaspi versus Fernando Lopez

November 8th, 2015

For Round 5, we’re looking at Destin Kaspi, packing a unique Deck that combines Majespecters, Performages, Dracoslayers, and Gem-Knights! It’s a big variety of small combos that work well together. His opponent is Fernando Lopez, who is wielding a Qliphort Deck. Qliphorts are able to easily use a ton of Trap Cards to hamper their opponent’s plans, so he may be able to put a stop to Kaspi’s combos before they get going.
